Hope Project

Help with Veterinary Cost

Dogs Trust’s Hope Project provides help with the cost of veterinary treatment for any dog whose owner is homeless. Dogs that are part of our Hope Project Veterinary Scheme are entitled to free flea and worming treatments, vaccinations, neutering and microchipping. We can also subsidise most additional treatments that a dog may need.

The scheme runs in 110 towns and cities across the UK and is available to any dog owner who is rough sleeping or living in temporary accommodation such as a hostel, night shelter or temporary accommodation. We can also help dog owners who are sofa surfing or living on an unauthorised travellers site. Dog owners can apply to our scheme through any participating homelessness organisation or by applying to us directly.


Help with Finding Accommodation

The Hope Project also works with hostels to help them become dog-friendly. We offer a range of resources and advice on issues such as health and safety, hygiene and behaviour. On our Hope Project website we hold a list of hostels that accept dogs.
